I need to install linux in a Digital Alpha Workstation 500a but i
can't boot it with the MILO disk. Looking forward to your help!
Hi, I'm Marco from Italy.....I'm new to this newsgroup
I have a Digital Personal Workstation 500a.......and I would like to install
I downloaded the Red Hat 7.1 for alpha....
I read about installing linux on Alpha with Alphabios.....
....so I made a floppy with the linload.exe and miata files(hope miata is
the right one) that I find in the milo\images directory on cd 1......
then I setup Alphabios to boot from floppy.....
but when the Digital loads milo everything stops at:
Swapping to PALcode at 0x80000...
no more nothing....I can only reboot the machine.
Please help me....why this?
It is possible that the problem is the videocard?
there is another way to boot up Linux? Maybe without the Alphabios?
Thank you for your time
